Thanks for the clarification on the constuction material. I am going with the resin and rid my life of rust. ( Pictures to follow next week.) I am still curious why there are two types of mufflers, the straight thru and the vertical lift. Is the answer no more than where or how it is to be used? I used the vertical lift type on my sailboat because I needed to get the exit hose above the water line and this seemed a good way to do it, but I could have used a straight thru just as easily, or more so because I had to build a base for the muffler to sit on. On my Commander, the cast iron muffler is hung above the water line and replacing it is simple with the in-line type. There is also a price difference. Does it matter whether the exhause is from gas or diesel (a tempature difference)? Or is it a space issue. The vertical lift muffler takes up more deck space below. I am making this too big a deal, but still curious.
